English Soldiers in China Attacked PKtPlNO, Aug. 2G.—Throe British soldiers were fired upon while returning to their barracks from u. motion picture, the British embassy disclosed today. •The shots came from a moving automobile and one soldier was wounded In the leg. The incident created apprehension hero because of rumors It was Instigated by Japanese seeking to avenge the slaying of Klauku Sasaki, a Japanese soldier, May 26.

As a result of last night's Incident the British embassy requested tho C.hlnese government to protect British lives and property In China. S EVOLUTION May Be Heuded for All-Four Posture or Two Other Destinies, Says Uy HOWARD W. HLAKESLEIS Auoclated Pirn Science Kdltor HAMILTON, N. Y., Aug. 25.— Man In his evolution may be headed for an all-fours posture, or for a survival of only tho slim walsted, or for a race that forgets Us three square meals and eats frequently and lightly. The reasons were advanced today by Dr. Donald A. Laird, professor of psychology at Colgate University, In the Medical Record. He reports that after finding that office workers slowed down and made Increased errors the first hour afler lunch, he experimented with Colgate students to learn whether blood drawn from tho head by dl- gesllon explained the dullness. Students did mental arithmetic after eating and while lying with their heads lower than their feet. In this position they were better than with heads higher than feet. Dr. Laird found the explanation In the "splanchnic reservoir," the area where the blood gathers around tho viscera. Digestion, ho staled, draws blood from the brain to tho splanchnic reservoir temporarily. Feet above head drains It back to the brain. "In the assumption of an upright position through evolution," ' Dr. Laird states, "homo sapiens has gained advantages and suffered losses. If mankind went around on all fours the blood supply to tho brain would be better. "The superior size of tho human brain may be an overcompensallon lo make up for this slowing and Inaccuracy the upright position brought In Its wake. Sleep may bo more Important for men than animals, because the horizontal position permits an Increased flow of blood to tho brain. QTIFFQTBIIPPIf ollrr olRUbbLL New Deal Leader Opposed by Ex-Governor Conner in Mississippi (United Press Leased \\'lrrl JACKSON, Miss..

Harrison made his fight as a Roosevelt man. Bilbo, himself a former governor, Ignored such dull subjects and stumped every county but one of tho state with speeches designed to obtain the vote of tho "one- gallus boys." Bilbo supported Conner because he had n grudge against Harrison, tils senior In the Mississippi congressional delegation. Harrison once saved Bilbo from political extinction by getting him a $0000 a year job clipping newspapers In Washington when he was out of office and broke. But Harrison offended Bilbo later by getting Federal Judge 13. R. Holmes elevated to tho Court of Appeals over Bilbo's opposition. Judge Holmes 15 years ago ordered Bilbo to Jail for 30 days for contempt of court.
